Strong and Untamable

There is an eagle in me that wants to soar, and there is a hippopotamus in me that wants to wallow in the mud".   Carl Sandburg

Universally admired for its soaring spirit, the eagle has a striking presence that exudes a powerful sexual energy. As is typical of bird personalities, their high metabolisms make them edgy and unable to remain in one place for long. These fascinating creatures are natural explorers and nothing gets their juices flowing more than an exotic locale and their effervescence makes them appealing lovers. However, their obsession for freedom makes them difficult creatures to tame.

An Eagle is Unmistakable

Sleek and well groomed, the eagle's looks are striking, even if they occasionally have minor aesthetic flaws (perhaps a bald spot or big nose), and they exude a strong sexual energy that turns heads. They enjoy most outdoor activities and have a particular affinity for extreme sports like sky diving, rock climbing, or bungee jumping.

The Eagle Personality on the Job

Eagles do not adjust well to the confines of office work where they easily become unsettled and perform poorly, unless the work is creative and challenging.

Outdoor jobs are coveted, and eagles enjoy working in the hot sun as a construction worker, serving in a natural setting as a park ranger or piloting the friendly skies. The proverbial legal eagle, they also enjoy the creative freedom of litigation, police, and detective work. However, eagles do not adjust well to the confines of office work. When they find themselves in this kind of career they become unsettled and perform poorly, unless the work is creative and challenging.

The Eagle is a Bird at Heart

Eagles are truly at their best when performing for others. Like the wild eagle whose aerial displays attract a large audience, they are in their element when singing, acting, or telling stories. But their enthusiasm for life comes at a price -- because even when their spirits are low -- they feel obliged to always seem upbeat.

Eagles in the Wild

Perhaps from its use on the seal of the United States of America, the eagle has become the most familiar of birds. Most eagles are solitary and only come together in groups when prey is plentiful.

Eagles take a variety of small animals for food and are not averse to eating carrion, and a spectacular method of feeding is the eagle's habit of robbing ospreys. By constantly harrying an osprey carrying a captured fish, the eagle forces the bird to drop the fish, and sometimes they will even grab the fish from the osprey's talons while in mid-flight.

Love and Friendship

Eagles are quite comfortable with their own company, and prefer to first feather their nests -- by achieving a level of success in their personal lives -- before rushing into commitment.  They relish the challenges that intimacy brings and, when they do tie the knot, their strong nesting instincts make them loyal and dedicated partners. Eagles are attracted mainly to independent mammal personalities like the fox, wolf, and wildcat, but they are not above trolling for companionship amongst smaller animal personalities:  mice, snakes, shrews, and moles are particularly vulnerable to the eagle's lusty appetites. 

Ultimately, the eagle's perfect match is the mountain goat with whom it shares a love for solitude and mountain top vistas. There is an instant connection with these enigmatic animals and the relationship is destined for great heights.
